White Christmas more likely to be a reality
Dreams of a white Christmas are more likely than ever to become reality.
Meteorologists are sticking to their forecast — they issued their first winter weather advisory Sunday in anticipation of a storm that could leave Colorado Springs with its first white Christmas in 25 years.
The advisory, in effect from 5 a.m. Monday through 11 a.m. Tuesday, covers Teller County and northern El Paso County. As much as 6 inches of snow could fall.
Colorado Springs could receive 1 to 3 inches of snow, said Mark Wankowski, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Pueblo.
Since 1894, Colorado Springs has had a 5 percent chance of having a white Christmas — defined as having an inch of snowfall, according to the National Weather Service. The last time it happened was in 1987.
